APC pickup wiring help..three wires??

Hey guys, not new to soldering etc but I just got new apc tele pickups which have 2 wires twisted together and a ground wire on each..

Here are the instructions from adder..
Wiring instructions for APCpickups.

All coil leads are twisted pairs.

All standard APCpickups have this arrangement – BLACK=GROUND, WHITE=HOT (twisted together), BLACK=BODY GROUND

All reverse wound APCpickups have this arrangement – GREEN=GROUND, RED=HOT (twisted together), WHITE=BODY GROUND

For example with my neck t300n pickup do I solder the green(ground) wire at the same place (back of pot) as I solder the black (body ground) wire? then the red (hot) goes to its typical place on the selector switch?
Likewise for the bridge..


it is just a Stock fender mij tele; 3way switch with volume and tone control.
they are t300b and t300n apc pickups.
thanks in advance!!

Yes all the grounds can go to the same spot, then hot (white and red) to the switch.
